NASA releases a vast library of pictures and videos

Share

Now you can explore the final frontier from the comfort of your home.

After NASA announced the end of its shuttle program in 2011, popularity for the once paramount space program seemed to dwindle. Now, however, with all the dreams of a Martian colony, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand why people are starting to take interest again.

In an effort to give the public an outlet for their curiosity about Mars, the stars, and beyond, NASA has released a sizable internet archive brimming with photos, illustrations, videos, and audio that span the entirety of this storied institution. OpenCulture has the story:

Since the 1990s, the agency has published hundreds of photos and videos online, but these efforts have been fragmentary and not particularly user-friendly. That changed this month with the release of a huge photo archive—140,000 pictures, videos, and audio files, to be exact—that aggregates materials from the agency’s centers all across the country and the world, and makes them searchable. The visual poetry on display is staggering, as is the amount of technical information for the more technically inclined.

So if you feel like exploring a new frontier, just think of the treasures never before seen by the public just waiting for you to discover!
